Default Need a Consensus

I have been historically bad at identifying gender with young birds so I usually buy ones that are mature enough that there's no doubt, but Peewee has me on the fence. I have a leaning but I'm curious what you guys think.

It's been this color for a month and hasn't changed. Pee is around 2 months old, I would have figured it would have gone one way or the other by now but I'm not sure how mutation might be an influence.

Thoughts?

Definitely looks male to me. Lets see though what our resident experts have to say! He's gorgeous, btw!

He definitely is a boy. Looks like a recessive pied, where he'll keep the juvenile color cere throughout his life. He's really beautiful!

Indeed, you have a gorgeous recessive pied male budgie there.

The pics you posted are perfect to see the translucent quality on the ceres on young males or older males who keep the immature pinkish/ purplish colour on their ceres throughout their lives.

PeeWee is such a cute little boy!
I just love his sweet face. I do hope you'll share more of PeeWee's pictures with us.

Well glad I asked! I have been calling him a her this entire time haha, that's going to take some adjusting. I started to question it when Peewee mounted Chachi briefly, guess that would explain it then.

Thanks for settling this everyone!
